Road Safety Awareness.


The safety of our children is of paramount importance to everyone at Thornhill Primary School. At the start and end of the day there is a lot of traffic outside of school and it would be dreadful if any of the children were injured or involved in an accident with a car.

  • School are working in partnership with South Yorkshire Police and RMBC to keep our pupils safe.
  • Parking on the double yellow lines and zig zag lines is illegal. Some of our children are smaller than the height of your car which makes them difficult to see so drive slowly and carefully past school.
  • Beware of children trying to cross between parked cars and drive slowly.
  • The zig zag lines should be kept clear so children can cross the road safely.
  • Remember some children walk home alone so watch out for them.
  • The PCSO will be patrolling to enforce road safety and ensure the vehicles near our school are using the roads safely and within the law.
  • Penalties will be issued by the PCSO for those people who are not using the roads correctly.

 

Because the weather is now getting warmer we would like you to consider walking to school if you live near enough. It’s a good way to keep fit and keep your family healthy. It also gives you a chance to chat.

On 10th– 21stJune we would like to invite you and your children to walk to school every day. We’ll be setting you some challenges to have a go at each day – more information to follow about this.

Help us to ensure your child is safe on our roads.

Thank you.

South Yorkshire Cheerleading final

On Friday 22nd March Thornhill’s Cheerleading Squad competed in the South Yorkshire School Games. They ‘danced’ to an 1980s theme. They were very colourful and their costumes were admired by many of the spectators. They came an extremely impressive 4th out of 10 teams. 

Y6 activity day at the EIS

Last week all the children in Year 6 went to the English Institute of Sport with several other local schools.  While there, they took part in 24 different activities, supported by Sports Leaders from Winterhill and Wingfield.  One of our children proudly achieved 3rd place in the 100 metre; an amazing achievement considering the number of children that took part.  A fun and tiring day was had by all.

CONDUCTIVE MUSIC

This term, Year 5/6 were lucky enough to take part in 2 Conductive Music Sessions. They learnt how to code and programme a QuirkBot using some online software. They made a light saber and a musical instrument from the Quirkbot. Children were able to code the QuirkBot so the lights would flash at different speeds and in different orders. Each part of the QuirkBot was also able to play different notes. The children really enjoyed the sessions and learnt something exciting and new! 

ROTHERHAM CHEERLEADERS FINAL

On Friday 8th March Thornhill Cheerleaders competed in the Rotherham Final’s with their 1980s theme. They came 2nd and will now represent Rotherham in the School Games to be held at the EIS.
